Margarita & Salsa Festival

Date: Aug 24, 2019

The Margarita & Salsa Festival has been one of the hottest parties of the summer in central Texas for the past 23 years. This year’s event will take place on August 24 at the Extraco Events Center.

Get ready to dance and sing the night away with four of the hottest acts in Texas country music. The eclectic, country-soul group Shinyribs will kick off the evening, followed by the “Next Big Thing” singer-songwriter, William Clark Green. Texas country musician and Waco native, Wade Bowen, will also take the stage Saturday evening, followed by fan-favorite performers, Josh Abbott Band.

Before the live music begins, check out all of the entries in the Margarita & Salsa Contests. Whether you like your salsa spicy or mild, there is sure to be something for every salsa aficionado! Purchase a tasting cup to sample all of the fun, unique margaritas entered in the contest and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award. If you like craft beer, be sure to purchase a tasting cup to try some local brews.

All proceeds from this event go towards the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo Scholarship Fund.
